Hi there guys
I'm trying to figure out what is happening here.
I run AI CS6. I open new document and prepare two shapes and fill them up with Pantone colors for reference, for my design.
I procced to make some work, name cards for example.
Now I want to send the card to my printer, while I work on the rest of colleterals. So I open new document, identical to the one I oppened
30 minutes ago. I don't change color setting or anything. But when I paste the cards to new document, they change color.
When I sample the colors, the Color Pallet identifes them correctly by thier pantone number.
Could someone please shad some light? I really don't understand what is happening.
Both documents are CMYK. I didn't touch the proof colors, and when I check it just now, they are set the same.
My color palents are CMYK in both documents.
It's literally mattter of minutes, when I opened new document, steterd work, then instantly (without making any changes) opened a new one CTRL N,
paste the content and it changes color on its on. Both documentes created 20 minutes apart.
And it does it to all my files now. I open some older source, also using pantone fills. Then open new document, copy paste, all faded out.
When I check the document settings, everything is identical and when I sample the colors, it still shows the correct Pantone. Just the display is different.
I'm worry, while using shortcuts, I could change something without actually going to the menus. I just can't find it.
I really appreciate you are taking the time to read.
I just like to let you know, that I managed to fix it
Here is the reason, and way to over come that issue.
First I found this forum:
Due to my limited English vocabulary, I wasn't serching right. Once I use "dull" in my search phrase, I came across many more posts, discussing exact same problem.
Then I found here:
and the link to fix:
I followed all the steps, and now my copy paste works just like it used to All colors are consistant.
Thank you once again for taking the tim to read, and for leading me into right direction.
